Good stuff! Review by Eli
Rating
This keyboard is lovely. What a visual stunner. The keycaps are smoother than I anticipated so the feel took a bit to get used to (but get used to it I did). Very clean look, great typing feel, not too loud when you bottom out (but there is a definite 'clack') and the browns don't click on activation so I can be quiet while the lady is napping with just a minimal effort. Looks downright professional; it's really nice not having any logos or snakes, skulls or flames on the thing -I really can't say enough good things about it.
The moulding on front seam could be a touch smoother, but it's not something you notice 99.9% of the time.
One last minor complaint is the USB cable provided is maybe over-made, so it's a bit of a fuss to get it in the cable runs and around the corners, while the grooves themselves don't hold onto it too well. The protrusions in the channels could be emphasised towards their bottoms some fraction of a mm and it would probably do the trick. It hardly, HARDLY matters though, you're only going to notice the cable comes out if you're picking up the keyboard to move it or clean it, and you probably won't care I'm just noting it here to be thorough. It's really a great keyboard. (Posted on 4/21/17)
Love at First Type! Review by Icer Jo

I purchased my Code 104-Key Mechanical Keyboard via Massdrop December of 2015 as a Gift to myself and when it Arrived promptly in January I was in Love!! This keyboard is my daily and what can I say? It checks all the box's that I had for a keyboard, I had the macro type of keyboards in the past, and RGB and the works is not my cup of tea as that's too distracting for me. The only thing missing would have been a USB 3.0 HUB but that's not the point of this keyboard :).
After owning this keyboard for over a year I am satisfied and would gladly buy another one for my office at work!! (Posted on 4/12/17)
Absolutely LOVE IT - but need the O-rings Review by Richard
Rating
My typing accuracy has really improve - though I did notice that it was more important to be properly centered on keyboard than on my old Logitech - easy adjustment.

Also, a Code with the Clear switches for a customer with the O-rings they are close quarters with others (a quad cubicle) - I knew the extra bit of quiet was needed.

For me, I thought don't wasted the extra $30 - you work at home and your wife's office is down the hall. NOT! My wife just left $15 on the table and said please buy the O-rings. Done

Otherwise this is exactly what I hoped for. (Posted on 1/8/17)
Notably better compute experience Review by Chris
Rating
Highlights of the product I have purchased and will repeat purchase for home shortly:

* LED lighting that can be dimmed to a level that retains elegance and cleanliness at my workstation
* A function key that permits single handed access to my most commonly used extended functions (volume + media controls)
* Excellent build quality with feedback that doesn't irritate coworkers to the point of distraction (I went for MX Browns with red o-rings).

My only gripe with the keyboard is it's lack of a USB hub. If the keyboard included a 4 port USB 3 hub, it would be ideal for my personal use, but I realise that wouldn't be ideal for everyone and the increase in cost might turn some off.

Overall: I highly recommend this keyboard for anyone wanting to maximise their tangible compute experience. (Posted on 11/27/16)
Well designed lighting - I hope the LEDs have a long life Review by Ptarmigan
Rating
I chose this keyboard primarily because of the back-lighting. In particular the dual character keys (e.g. number keys with shifted symbols) are properly illuminated with both characters positioned above the LED. This was a shortcoming on my previous keyboard (Ducky) where the digit was at the bottom of each keycap and poorly illuminated by the LED which was at the top of each key.

The being said, the reason I needed a new keyboard is that some LEDs on my Ducky keyboard started to fail at 3 years. I will be upset if the the same happens on my CODE keyboard, considering this is even more expensive.

The typing experience is great - I am familiar with MX Brown switches.

As at least one other reviewer has mentioned, the corners of the case are pointed and not especially pleasant to encounter with fingers or hands. The case designers should consider rounding off these angles.

I did not realize at time of ordering that only blank OS keys were provided. Perhaps this should be highlighted in the ordering process. Considering the premium price, a pair of OS keys Windows should have been included (with the selection being made at order time). (Posted on 11/6/16)
Awesome Review by Greggory
Rating
Really awesome keyboard, first mechanical keyboard. Looks to be a very high quality build. Only thing that might take some getting used to: I am used to mac keyboards, and the command key is one key moved over on this board. Small thing. (Posted on 10/24/16)
So glad to have it Review by Chris Lagasse
Rating
I have been loving my keyboard. My only problems with it are similarly shared by a couple other reviewers: Due to its backlight nature, there are not a lot of viable options for replacement keys.

As I have OSX, I would love to get the Media Keys to replace my Function ones, however, without a backlight option for the set, I ended up not making the purchase.

I am used to bottoming out on my keys, and I actually wanted to get the Cherry MX Red, initially, due to this bottoming out habit. That said, since I got this keyboard in Cherry MX Brown, I noticed that I actually type far lighter, and I'm actually thankful for the tactile feedback, as it controls my pressure far more.

My coworker just picked up a fully-custom WASD keyboard with Cherry MX Brown, so I'll be curious how it compares. :) (Posted on 10/10/16)
Good keys, but lacks polish Review by marhls
Rating
Key action is good and distinct which is the main reason I purchased, but the clicking is loud and annoying so I will need to buy the dampeners.
The LED backlight is good, but alternative keys are not available in the same style so I can't customise as though for the UK region e.g. [2"] [3£] etc.
Overall construction is solid, a little heavy but with good feet.
The plastic case feels VERY cheap though, there is even a nasty moulding 'scar' on the front edge right where I rest my thumb which is disappointing considering how much this keyboard cost.

**REPLY FROM WASD: We apologize that you are not happy with the case. It sounds like you may have a defective one that slipped through the factory QC. If you can send us a picture we should be able to send you a replacement case.** (Posted on 9/3/16)
A little too bouncy Review by Lester B
Rating
I grew up on Model M and similar keyboards. This is close, but a little lighter touch and bouncy. I had the heavier Cherry MX Green for a while, but that required too much force and felt more tiring than the old mechanical keyboards.

I like this better, but not as good as the old mechanicals. I end up slipping from key to key a little too easily, and making more typos than I used to. I should probably try the Cherry MX Blue, same weight as Brown but with the click. (Posted on 8/5/16)
Great Keyboard Makes Me Better Review by Chapps
Rating
I love the quality of the Cherry MX Brown keys and the keyboard overall, especially the slickness of the keys, which I really enjoy. Overall it helps me type better, not necessarily faster but fewer errors, and that has value. The price is high but that is expected given its quality and I would purchase again without hesitation.
